Jrue Holiday Headshot

Jrue Holiday (toe) is still listed as questionable for Thursday.

Holiday (turf toe) said his recovery has been going well, but as noted he is not sure if he will be able to play today. Tim Frazier would start and benefit the most if Holiday is unable to play. There will be another update closer to game time.

Jamal Murray Headshot

Jamal Murray (quad) listed as probable is expected to play Thursday.

Murray played 34 minutes in the loss to the Nets last night. He finished with 12 points and got some extra minutes after Mudiay was benched. He is someone to keep an eye on, and should be owned in deeper leagues.

Nikola Vucevic Headshot

Nikola Vucevic (eye) is questionable for Friday's game.

Vucevic got poked in the eye while throwing down a dunk last night. He is averaging a double-double when he has played. Bismack Biyombo and Stephen Zimmerman will get more time should Vucevic not play.

DeMarre Carroll Headshot

DeMarre Carroll (rest) will not play Thursday or Friday.

Terrance Ross will get the bump in minutes with Carroll out. When Carroll has played, he has scored just over ten points a game. Ross scores the same amount of points in fewer minutes, so he should get a bump in shots and points as well.

Isaiah Thomas Headshot

Isaiah Thomas is unlikely to play Friday.

Thomas is recovering from a groin injury. When he has played, he's been a top player, averaging 26 points and 6.1 assists per game. Marcus Smart stepped in to start yesterday, and scored 13 points.

Nikola Jokic Headshot

Nikola Jokic might be in the starting lineup Thursday.

In his game yesterday, Jokic scored 14 points and had 11 assists in 21 minutes, and shot 5-for-7 from the field. If he steps up he will replace Jusuf Nurkic in the starting lineup.

Maurice Ndour Headshot

Maurice Ndour (ankle) will play Friday.

The forward played 10 minutes on Wednesday due to the Knicks getting blown out by the Cavaliers, but did not score a point. Ndour is not in the rotation and can be avoided.

Vince Carter Headshot

Vince Carter remains questionable for Thursday.

This is a positive development as the veteran has been ruled out the day before each game. However, Carter's fantasy upside is limited so owners can look elsewhere.

Seth Curry Headshot

Seth Curry remains without a timetable to return.

The positive is that Curry has been working out so he could be in line for a return possibly this weekend. Jonathan Gibson and Justin Anderson will receive more minutes while Curry is out, but they don't have much upside.
